The Benefits of a Waterproof Dog Bed

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), “A great dog bed provides your pup a space that’s not only comfortable but also supportive and soft.”

But what if you have a puppy who isn’t housebroken, or an older dog, or one who loves to play in mud puddles? In these cases, a waterproof bed is a must.

When shopping for a great waterproof dog bed, look for these details:

  • Impermeability. Be sure the bed is actually waterproof (i.e. provides a complete barrier to water) and not just water-resistant (made of a tightly woven material that water struggles to penetrate). Many products use the terms interchangeably.
  • Hygienic and odor resistance. Some beds can be wiped down or hosed off. If they have a removable cover that can be thrown into the washing machine, that’s even better.
  • Durability. Generally, waterproof materials are made of synthetic fabrics with coatings that provide a urine barrier and tend to be more chew-resistant.
  • Indoor/outdoor usability. Waterproof beds may be moved into the yard so your dog can enjoy a little fresh air.
  • Size. Most dog beds come in various sizes. Make sure you buy one roomy enough to accommodate your dog, from paws to hindquarters.

Drymate Dog Mat

Drymate Dog Crate Mat

Crate training your dog encourages their natural instincts to carve out a quiet and secure place for themselves. On top of that, crates and kennels are safe ways to transport pets to the vet or on long car trips.

The Drymate dog crate mat is not a dog bed per se, but your dog will certainly sleep well on it when they’re in their crate. This dog kennel accessory has an absorbent top layer with a waterproof and slip-resistant backing that protects floors and other surfaces while keeping the mat firmly in place. It can be cut with scissors to fit any size crate without edges fraying.
